There's this feature over at Dear Author I really like called First Sale, held on Mondays, in which an author guest blogs about their publication path. I'm abnormally curious about this sort of thing which is why I liked the feature so much.
But there was one little problem--they mostly only do romance authors. And I don't read romance. And I haven't seen this type of thing done in YA book blogs. And--
So I emailed the ladies there last week and with their blessing, I'm going to start a YA version of it. From now until I run out of materials, expect a new Pub Story (look, I'm not creative) each week.
There will be excitement.
So I'm just making this public announcement because if there are any authors out there who follow my blog and I don't know you or have never reviewed your book(s) or both, and you have a funny/unusual/what-have-you pub story, please email me. I'm letting go of that 'I have to have read your book and loved it to host you here' policy of mine for this particular feature. So, email me.
Providing a giveaway copy of your book is always a plus.
